How do Homeowners Qualify for the Canada Greener Homes Grant?
To qualify for the grant, homeowners must have a home energy evaluation performed by a qualified energy advisor, like our experts at Ecolibrium. Our home energy consultants provide homeowners with recommendations for energy-efficient upgrades that can be made to their homes.
Individuals apply for a pre-approval, once approved an energy audit takes place. Updates are then completed, followed by a second audit. Once the energy evaluation is completed, homeowners can apply for the grant to help cover the costs of the recommended upgrades. The program covers up to $5,000 plus up to $600 for the cost of the energy evaluation, whichever is less. The grant is available to all Canadian homeowners.
The Canada Greener Homes Grant is a great way for homeowners to make their homes more energy-efficient, reduce their carbon footprint, and save money on energy bills. It also helps to support the growth of the green economy and create jobs in the energy-efficient home improvement sector.
